I think the psi thing is hit or miss, some have higher than others.. Good luck though.. Hope you plan on upgrading later.. But sooner would be better.

With proper tuning and 93 octane fuel 8psi in my opinion is max , If you are willing to run higher octane 100 to 110 that 250 is a good safe number and i have made over 300 at the wheels on an all stock Zetec
